CCPS gets new logo; LPD tracks sex pervert

By Laura Katsirdakis

Sometimes Mother Nature can be just as much of an obstacle for police as our friendly neighbourhood criminals.

Elgin Austen, director of police services for the Campus Community Police Service, warned that this time of year water can rise high enough to flood riverside pathways and even some parking lots. On Saturday, the Medway parking lot was partially reclaimed by the Thames River.

With the river flowing very quickly and the high water levels, Austen recommended taking caution. He noted the river levels are controlled by city dams, but that heavy rainfall, in conjunction with melting snow, can cause flooding.

In other news, our very own campus cops have answered the age old question: doesn’t everyone like getting a makeover? CCPS agrees and would like students to know their logo has recently undergone a polishing.

Austen explained that the new logo is intended to emphasize that the CCPS is a community partner, and students are considered a major partner with campus police in their effort to improve the quality of life on campus.

Const. Paul Martin, spokesperson for the London Police Department, warned students that a number of incidents of sexual assault have occurred the downtown area, near Victoria Park. Two of the three incidents in the area are suspected by police to have been committed by the same individual.

The suspect, shown above, is a white male, 19 to 25 years old, about 5 foot 7 inches and 150 to 160 pounds. Anyone who spots this individual is asked to call police at 661-5670 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS. Just a hint: if you do spot him, stay out of ass-grabbing range.
